303. David6 Wallingford (David5, Peter4, John3, John2, Nicholas1) was born in Milton, Strafford County, New Hampshire in 1801.(2065) David died 20 July 1878, in Milton, Strafford County, New Hampshire.(2066) He was buried in the Plummer-Jones-Palmer Cemetery on Plummer's Ridge in Milton, N.H.

He married Mary Ann Tasker, 21 September 1828.(2067) They were married by the Rev. Enoch Hayes Place.

Mary was born in 1805, in Strafford, Strafford County, New Hampshire.(2068) Mary died in 1887, probably in Milton, N.H..(2069) She was buried in the Plummer-Jones-Palmer Cemetery on Plummer's Ridge in Milton, N.H.

David's brother Samuel's widow Sally's second husband Levi Jones kept an account book that can be found in the Special Collections room of the University of New Hampshire library. In it he mentions the employment of David Wallingford Jr. This may refer to this David or to his nephew, son of Samuel. The designation "Jr." would seem to indicate this David, however the fact that the nephew David is Levi's stepson presents another possibility. Another employee at the store was Nahum Tasker who married this David's sister Mary. The first entry mentioning David's employment says he began work 21 April 1834, and the last was on 24 July 1847. Levi died a month later.

On 17 May 1834 David was appointed guardian of Isaac L. Scates, George W. Scates and Clarissa Scates, minor children of Isaac Scates, late of Milton. He gave bond of $1000 with his father-in-law Levi Jones and John H. Horn, both of Milton. Isaac Scates was the brother-in-law of David's brother Samuel, and also was brother to Deacon John Scates, who had been guardian to David himself after his father's death. (See his father's record for more information on this.) On 22 January 1840, after the death of Isaac's widow Betsey, David was appointed administrator of his estate. He gave bond of $1000 with Levi Jones and John H. Varney, both of Milton.(2070)

In the 1850 census David Wallingford, a 49-year old farmer, born N.H., was living in Milton on a farm worth $1500, which was bigger than average for its day. Living with him are his wife Mary and six children, as well as Sarah Wallingford, age 78, born N.H.(2071) This is probably his mother Sarah (Corson) Wallingford. Ten years later they are still in Milton on a farm now worth $3000, with personal property worth $900. Five children as well as David's probable mother Sarah, age 88, are living with them.(2072) In 1870 David and Mary are still in Milton. The farm is now worth $4000 and their personal possession estate worth $982 and only their son David and his wife Mary are living with them.(2073)

David represented Milton in the State Legislature, and served as a Justice of the Peace. Politically he was a Republican(2074). Other names after his on David's tombstone are probably all children of his, and include Samuel Wallingford, 1830-1830, David W. Wallingford, 1844-1844, and Susan E. Wallingford, 1852-1856. These may not be children of David and Mary Ann but for the time being they will be added here assuming they are. One source states that he had ten children in all, only three of whom (Samuel W., David W., and Emma F., were living in 1897.(2075)

David Wallingford and Mary Ann Tasker had the following children:

child 458 i. Samuel7 Wallingford was born probably in Milton, N.H. in 1830.(2076) Samuel died in 1830, probably in Milton, N.H..(2077) He was buried in the Plummer-Jones-Palmer Cemetery on Plummer's Ridge in Milton, N.H.

child + 459 ii. Eliza Jane Wallingford was born about 1832.

child 460 iii. George S. Wallingford was born probably in Milton, N.H. in 1834.(2078) His age was given as 14 in the 1850 census. George died in 1857, probably in Milton, N.H..(2079) He was buried in the Plummer-Jones-Palmer Cemetery on Plummer's Ridge in Milton, N.H.

child 461 iv. Samuel Willard Wallingford was born in Milton, Strafford County, New Hampshire 27 November 1837.(2080) Samuel died of "pyaemia fol. abcess", 25 May 1899, in Milton, Strafford County, New Hampshire, at 61 years of age.(2081) He was buried in the Plummer-Jones-Palmer Cemetery on Plummer's Ridge in Milton, N.H. He married Mary B. Plumer, 10 November 1870.(2082)

Mary was born 7 September 1844, in Milton, Strafford County, New Hampshire.(2083) Mary was the daughter of Enoch W. Plumer and Orinda Ayers. Mary died 22 September 1939, in Manchester, Hillsborough County, New Hampshire.(2084) She was buried in the Plummer-Jones-Palmer Cemetery on Plummer's Ridge in Milton, N.H.

The names of her parents come from the Milton Town Report record of her death. In that record Enoch Plumer was born in Milton and Orinda Ayers was born in Wakefield, N.H. Their family was living right next to her future husband's family in Milton in 1850 and 1860.

Samuel was educated in the common schools and at Lebanon, Maine Academy. He served an apprenticeship as a shoemaker, and continued as a journeyman shoemaker in Milton until 1870. He then went to Brooklyn, N.Y., and was instructor of shoemaking at the King's County Penitentiary for eight years. In 1878 he returned to Milton and settled on his father's farm, which became his when his father died that year. He owned 140 acres of land situated on Plummer's Ridge in Milton, and worked it as a successful farmer. Politically he was a Republican and served as Tax Collector for eight years. In 1870 he was elected to the State Legislature, and once again in 1892. In 1896 he was chosen Chairman of the Milton Board of Selectmen. He was a member of the Unity Lodge of Masons in Union, N.H., and attended the Congregational Church.(2087) They had no children.(2088)

child 462 v. Mary Ellen Wallingford was born probably in Milton, N.H. about 1841. (Based on the 1850 and 1860 censuses) Mary died by 1897.(2089) She married John Wingate, 5 January 1865, in Farmington, Strafford County, New Hampshire.(2090) The Wallingford Genealogy calls her Mary Ellen Wallingford and says she married a Wingate. Canney gives a date for the marriage of Nellie E. Wallingford, daughter of David of Milton, and John Wingate. Are they one in the same? We will assume so for now. John Wingate was from Strafford, N.H.

child 463 vi. David W. Wallingford was born probably in Milton, N.H. in 1844.(2091) David died in 1844, probably in Milton, N.H., at less than one year of age.(2092) He was buried in the Plummer-Jones-Palmer Cemetery on Plummer's Ridge in Milton, N.H.

Drew, 23 February 1870, in Andover, Mass..(2095) George was a machinist and they were both living in Lawrence, Mass. at the time of their marriage.

George was born about 1845/46, in Strafford, Strafford County, New Hampshire. George was the son of Tobias Drew and Eliza. His birth and parentage comes from his marriage certificate.

In 1897 they were living in Fall River, Mass.(2096)
